Last year, after discovering the not-so sparkly side of glitter, we committed to launch a new, more eco-friendly line of glitter cosmetics in 2019. Today, we’re happy to announce we’re making good on that promise.
Following our announcement, our small team — there are just 14 of us! — has been working tirelessly, investigating the relationship between glitter and the environment, experimenting with materials that break down organically, and working with industry leaders to ensure we can provide top quality glitter products without contributing to the environmental problem. Although there are no current regulations around the sale of glitter, we saw this is a chance for our small company to lead the way and become an agent for change.
Enter Unicorn Snot BIO, a line of cruelty-free glitter cosmetics made from 100% renewable plant starches. Arriving summer 2019, our BIO line comprises a Glitter Gel, Glitter Lip Gloss, and Glitter Sunscreen. The biodegradable glitter or “bioglitter” used in the line is safer for the environment than traditional plastic glitter, without losing any of its sparkle.
